Default Wheels, where to buy?? & last min info * UPDATE *

One last time, cuz i think this friday im going to get wheels and tire.

Heres what i want to get, keeping it under $850 or so

17" Wheels 5 Spoke w/ 235x55 tires
or
16" wheels 5 spoke w/ 235x60 tires.

im trying to find a good place to get them, i 98% sure im going to get Black with chrome ring.

or if someplace has a all Gun Metal look i like that too.

so let me know where there is a good place online or local, my Zip code is 14568, Walworth, NY.
i just rying to get some more ideas be for i spend almost a grand and so i can save the most money and not go oooo SH337 1 week later when i see the same wheels for $150 cheeper some where else

Thanks everyone

They'll look sportier without being over-the-top by any means. I think it'd look really good.

Check out Dunn Tire. They have stores in & around Rochester. Good prices on tires but I never compared their prices on wheels. Their web site lets you pick your vehicle & color then shows your wheel selection on the car. Painfully slow but kinda cool.
